As the producers of fine heritage spirits, Puente Internacional is the proud bridge to Mexican culture, traditions, and history through our products and expressions.

Through sustainable farming of our own, and families we source from, we put care, thought, and honor into every step from seed to bottle.

As Puente Internacional grows, so does our team, both in Mexico and USA, as we forge lifelong relationships with all of those that join our mission to be the bridge to heritage spirits.

Today, we are proud owners of two vinatas producing our La Luna Mezcals and one distillery producing our Gustoso Rums, while working closely with NOM1414 to produce our Tequila Gran Dovejo. Our efforts in Michoacán have resulted in growing our team to over 50 strong across our properties!
